Abstract

In epileptic women who become pregnant aggravation occurs in 40% of the cases, but this never necessitates abortion. Status epilepticus is rare. Incidence of seizures does not increase permanently, but after the puerperium returns to the pre-pregnancy value. There are no reliable prognostic indicators. However, there exists a chronological correlation between the incidence of seizures and lowering of the serum level of anti-epileptic agents, so that regular determination of serum levels is advisable. The risk of malformations in children of epileptic parents is still an unsolved problem. Experience hitherto gained does not justify reduction or cessation of anti-epileptic therapy during pregnancy.
